Jason Chimera scored his 19th of the season on Saturday.

Jason Chimera reached the 30-point mark on Thursday.

Chimera found the back of the net in the Islanders' 6-3 loss to Philadelphia. This is the third time in four campaigns that Chimera has recorded at least 30 points. He'll all-but certainly finish below his 2015-16 mark of 40 points though.

Jason Chimera found the back of the net in the Islanders' 7-1 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Jason Chimera is getting comfortable with the New York Islanders.

Chimera inked a two-year deal with the Islanders after spending his previous six-plus campaigns with Washington. "It took a lot longer than I thought," Chimera said. "You don’t realize how much — the kids, the wife. We were in Washington for seven years, you get accustomed to having the same people around. The same people to watch the kids when you need it, the people your wife leans on when you’re on the road. Everything’s new here and you don’t always realize how much stress that puts on you. I’m certainly not looking for excuses but I think me and Andrew (Ladd) would tell you we wanted success to start a little quicker here." He has 10 goals and 18 points in 48 games, but that's after going on a run of five goals and six points in seven games from Jan. 13-24. Barring an injury, Friday's contest will be the 1,000th of his career.
Feb 3 - 8:44 AM

Jason Chimera netted his fifth goal of the season during Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Wild.

You're always told to just go to the net, and that's exactly what Jason Chimera did.

The veteran winger took a puck off his leg from Brock Nelson for his third goal over his last four games. Chimera is now up to four goals and nine points in 25 games this season. They also to learn from your elders, for what it's worth.

Jason Chimera now has goals in consecutive games.

The veteran is now up to three goals and eight points in 23 games this season. Not quite first-line material.

Jason Chimera has yet to score.

The former Capital started the season off on the top line with John Tavares and Andrew Ladd but failed to perform. Chimera had 20 goals and 40 points last season but 25-30 seems a more likely goal for the 37-year-old veteran.

Jason Chimera skated on the top line during Tuesday's practice.

That's a surprising position for Chimera, but it's a distinct possibility after the Islanders decided to waive P.A. Parenteau, who was then claimed by the New Jersey Devils. Chimera has never recorded more than 42 points in a single season and he's 37 years old so it's hard to be upbeat about his prospects of doing better than that in 2016-17. That being said, if Chimera really does end up consistently playing alongside John Tavares and Andrew Ladd then he will at least be worth keeping an eye on.

Jason Chimera will replace Matt Martin on the Islanders depth chart.

The Islanders signed Chimera to a two-year contract worth $4.5 million and the 37-year-old is excited to be playing in Brooklyn. "They’re knocking on the door every year, and hopefully I can help get them over the hump," Chimera said. "I’m one of those guys that wants to win a Stanley Cup pretty badly, so I think it’s going to be a good fit going forward." Chimera had 20 goals and 40 points last season in Washington but don't expect that kind of production out of the bottom-six forward this season.
